Abstract

The Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art is a freestanding addition to the Toledo Museum of Art in Toledo, Ohio, intended to house galleries for the museum's extensive collection of art glass alongside publicly-accessible glass blowing workshops. The preliminary architectural design is a building with a single level above ground approximately 60 m × 60 m in plan with a roof height of 4.5 m. The glass walls visually connect the interior rooms to each other and to the wooded park surrounding the pavilion. The solutions for the roof and floor are highly integrated with other building systems within their depth. The integration of the structural concept is indicative of the possibility of collaboration between designers.
